I am new to OpenCL world and curios to learn about it myself. Recently I have installed visual studio 2019 community version and heard that we can develop opencl applications using visual studio. Unfortunately, I couldn't find enough reasonable information about integrating opencl into visual studio for application development. Can anyone please help me in this regard? My question is 'How to integrate openCL into visual studio 2019 or visual studio 2015?
Looking forward to your prompt response please. Thank you.

To integrate OpenCL into Visual Studio 2019, you should install Intel(R) System Studio 2020, which also have integration into Visual Studio 2017.
You can find it here.
You mean if I install Intel's System Studio 2020, it will automatically integrate opencl into the Visual Studio 2019?
Yes, Intel(R) System Studio contains OpenCL Tools with plugins for Visual Studio 2019.
With installation, you can choose to install only OpenCL Tools, if you don't need something else from System Studio.
I downloaded Intel® System Studio for Windows as I am using Windows 8, but it says, only Windows 7 and 10 are supported for this System Studio version :-(
Should I continue to install it on Windows 8 anyway as the installer didn't stop me to proceed towards installation? OR any possibility to find previous versions like System Studio 2019 update 5, which I at-least couldn't find on Intel's website.
Thanks and Regards,
You can try install it on Windows 8, we didn't check it, cause it's not supported.
As I remember, 2019 Update 5 also supports only Windows 7 and Windows 10.
